    We have had access to a fridge in the past.

    Don't worry about the jet boil you can use my burner set up.

    We do breakfast Saturday and Sunday from group contrabutions.

    Dinner Saterday night has been a catfish place near by or hot dogs and bacon over the fire.

    Typically there is a coffee pot from one of the camper people available.

    Everyone is kind of on there own for lunch, should be out riding. I will probably be at Turkey bay flogging a two stroke.

    Well...a few knowns for sure are:
    • there is a community center that has tables and a fridge that has been available in the past we assume available this go around. We will do breakfast there SAT and SUN. Simple stuff: eggs, sausage, bacon, tortillas
    • lunch will be at camp or on the road somewhere near civilization most likely just north (Grand Rivers) or west (Aurora) of LBL. Depends on ride groups and where we end up.
    • We have some generous folks that like to cook almost as much as they like to ride. I'll venture to say that half of the attendees ride in and half trailer/truck/van in. Those who dont ride in bring coolers and such to keep food and drinks cool.

    Sounds like dinner FRI at camp is a go, On our own for lunches, and Breakfast at camp SAT and SUN. We usually end up at The Pond for Catfish SAT night https://goo.gl/maps/8EjricD6j3T2

    ^^^ thats about as much planning as I think is gonna happen. Everyone good with that?

    Greasy, chime in on what you need us to bring.

    for those that want to try out their camping kit, cook stoves, gadgets, etc., bring it and give it a whirl. A 3 day weekend trip is a good way to test stuff out and see what works.

    I've taken quite a few naps in my new sleeping bag and mattress, but only on the floor in the house. :D I usually bring MREs for grub...looking forward to seeing the camp chefs in action.

    It's all talk, except for greasy-dude. That guy has mad skills when it comes to preparing mass quantities of grub.

    And it's really good grub.

    I've witnessed this, although eggs and sausage probably don't count.

    I'm hoping to be able to soon. Totaling a bike and getting banged up sucks even more than they say it does.

    :y0!

    And I'm planning on adding some catfish to GFM's dinner on Friday night.. I'll bring along my fixin's/pan/fish and the only thing I MIGHT need is a heat source for the oil..
    Here's my last batch, and I ended up catching 6 cats in Kentucky lake a couple weeks ago, so I've got a good supply of fillets to cook up..
    This batch was just two fillets worth.. :-)

    That looks great man. Mayme and I have had some success with catfish and grits. Like shrimp and grits but cheaper. If we wanted to feed people again Saturday I am down for making gritts to go with catfish. I am also starving at the moment so this could be a bad idea.

    No, it's a great idea. Go with your gut. (Literally)

    Might need some veggies, though.... Need me to bring anything?
